(QUESTIONS ARE LISTED IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE, WITH THE MOST RECENT BEING ON TOP)


Answer to Last Week's Trivia Question Brought to you by: 


We asked:  "Can you name the driver of the #49 above in this Charles Taylor photo from the 60's at Wall Stadium?"

Answer:  Ray Shea.  Those of you who went to both Wall and East Windsor will remember that Ray was one of those driverss that ran on both asphalt and on dirt throughout the 70's.  As many of you know, once Ray hung up the goggles for good, he directed his efforts to preserving the history of racing in New Jersey by forming the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club (GSVSCC).

Answer to our 12/15 Trivia Question Brought to Us By:


...Considering the two cars in the picture below, what's kinda strange about this photo?

Answer:  Geoff Bodine and Richie Evans (two asphalt aces) in the pits at Flemington Speedway (dirt) for the 1970 All Star Race.  (From what we understand, the race was won by Dick Havens in the George Taylor owned #93.  Geoff drew the pool, but we hear pulled in after one lap.  Like many of you, I was there that night and remember it was magic to see both dirt and asphalt cars... many that you'd also see race at Trenton or Langhorne... at Flemington Speedway.

Can you name the driver behind the wheel of the #24?

Answer to our 11/10 trivia challenge brought to you by:



... Asphalt... Dirt.. We've lost count of all the cars that Don Stives has driven though the years.  But that's where you guys will be able to help out!
That's Don in one of his most successful asphalt rides (top photo) in the Norcia #81 in the 60's, and that's also Don in his own #3 alongside Ray Neary at East Windsor Speedway in the 70's.


We asked:  "Besides for the #81 and the #3 pictured above, can you name at least 3 "Asphalt Cars" OR 3 "Dirt Cars" that Don drove at some point in his career?"   Here's the answers that you guys came up with:

ASPHALT: DIRT:
#8x white #8x owned by Frank Ariano
#66 blue, owned by Don Cramner
#14 red, owned by Dick Barney
# 57 blue and white
# 2jr blue and white (former Ray Hendrick car)
# 89 white owned by Ron Smith
#16 blue Pinto owned by Bill White (also a white #16 coupe)
#29 Coupe
#81 Norcia Coupe
#89 coupes with the red numbers
#32 white sedan from the 60's
#3 red Coupe
#93 George Taylor owned white coupe
#600 Spivey's Auto Parts
#89 Taylor built white #89 Coupe
#9 Bob Cass owned Pinto
#35 Council Harroll owned maroon'ish coupe
#77 white Gremlin owned by Nick Piscitelli
#81 Norcia Coupe (at Syracuse)
#77 Red Coupe (Swengel?)

Note:  While this is a good list, I'd be willing to bet that Don probably drove twice as many cars as listed above!

Answer to 10/24/10 Trivia Question
Brought to you by:


We asked, "Can you name the driver/track of the Butler Built #T1... #71 above?"
(Check out the holes on the front of the hood box... I told you it was #T1(!)   Another cool thing about this car is I'm not sure about the roof, but I swear it looks like '69 Camaro quarter panels and "extended" doors!
*Note:  I'm being told that maybe some of the body was a Javelin???
Here's a the same photo below without the name blurred:
